Can you help with Donkey Assisted Therapy in Belfast?
10:17am Thursday 1st November 2012 in News
The Donkey Sanctuary has this week issued a plea for volunteers at its Donkey Assisted Therapy centre in Templepatrick near Belfast.
The centre, which provides over 6,000 riding therapy sessions for children with additional needs from across the province each year, is appealing for local people to join their existing team of volunteers.
Tina Symington, centre manager for The Donkey Sanctuary’s Donkey Assisted Therapy centre in Templepatrick, says: “We would love to hear from people who would like to get involved with our Donkey Assisted Therapy activities on Tuesdays or Thursdays, and are also looking for volunteers to help at our Wednesday Twilight Club (3-5pm). Our volunteers are highly valued members of the team and we couldn’t provide the level of service that we offer without them. If you live locally, have some spare time on your hands and are interested in finding out more about volunteering with us, please call the centre on 028 93324647.”
